Not so new Epi Pen Guidelines

A 13 year old died this week in California from an accidental ingestion of peanut butter.  And from her tragic and horrible death — I hope we all remember her and learn from this terrible situation.  So many articles have already been written on the subject — but BY FAR — this is one we...

    I can not even begin to imagine the worry and heartache that you and JT have every time she leaves your sight. Thank you so much for posting this. I too thought I was educated on the epi-pen. WRONG! Keep posting and keep spreading awareness 🙂ReplyCancel

    I hate to be “THAT” parent but to so many of my friends and family and especially the local school system, I am “THAT” parent. I homeschooled until second grade and he was able to articulate his allergy and read the word peanut in ingredients. However after a year of the school questioning my doctors requests and mine, I am considering homeschooling again. I do not trust putting my child into the care of people who do not FULLY understand the implications of an exposure to peanuts. It is not just a inconvenient rash or vomiting. It is potential DEATH. No one understands or cares to understand why I am so diligent and a but overzealous about the whole thing. This story makes me so sad for this family. We even choose vacation locations based on hospital locations. Living this life can be exhausting for me. I have to teach him how to care for himself. But he is 8years old and until he can do it for himself, I have to do it for him.ReplyCancel

    My daughter with a peanut allergy turns 8 tomorrow…..I try so hard to not live in fear and Emily is really good about not eating things she isn’t sure of. I’ve read that story of the girl in CA a few times over the last year. What kills me about this, is that her parents (and herself) made good decisions about food thousands of times over the years….it just takes one little crumb of the wrong food to change everything 🙁ReplyCancel

…six months later …

I love following clients through from belly shots to newborn to six months. From the anticipation, to the newness to the cuteness. Remember this guy?  Look at him now!!

    His Dream Day

    Tyler’s dream day might very well be dressing up as a superhero and then playing superhero legos on the iPad. Sad. Yet True.  He’s an electronic addict.  He’s only three.
